For those of you who stand outside the door of salvation... : LUSENET : A.M.E. Today Discussion : One Thread

As the resident geek for the board, and techno-weenie in general, I need to bring something to your attention.

In the Book of Revelation, John speaks of the Mark of the Beast, and how people in the last days would not be able to buy or sell without this mark.

While researching new technologies (and potentials for making money in the Stock Market), I ran across this website:

Yes, it goes underneath your skin (the size of the chip shown [12mm by 2.1mm] is less than the diameter of a PENNY). Yes, it can be powered by thermo-electricity (body heat). Yes, it can be linked to a variety of databases (your bank accounts and medical records, for example).

The technology used here is RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification). And before you think it can't happen, Michelin is ALREADY using RFID tags in the tires it sells (as an option). Wal-Mart wants all of its vendors to adopt this standard.

Annnnd.........The company recently unveiled VeriPass(tm) and VeriTag(tm), which will allow airport and port security personnel to link a VeriChip subscriber to his or her luggage (both during check-in and on the airplane), flight manifest logs and airline or law enforcement software databases.

So......repent, for the Day of the Lord is at hand!

Rev. Harper, These chips or a similiar type are currently used in pets. They probably will be imbedded in cattle after the mad cow fiasco. I worked on this technology about 20 years ago. We used it to track bank robbers.

Now, add the Global Positioning System (GPS) and we can track every individual on the earth 24/7. Kinda scary insn't it.

Be Blessed

Rev. Harper,

I heard a preacher use this same example a few weeks ago when he was preaching that the second coming of Jesus is near. He also said that there were 100 prophecies in the old testament which accounted for the first coming and 300 prophecies in the old testament to account for the second coming. Since that time I have been looking for those prophecies which describe the approaching of the second coming of Jesus. I find Zechariah 14 to be most intriguing. I wish I had a theologian to do an exegesis on these 300 prophecies from the old testament describing the nearing of the second coming of Jesus Christ.
